Shreaks, Schrills, and Squeals

Molly has discovered her voice! Her sounds are definitely changing. She will shreak, and squeal now, and you can definitely tell when she is annoyed! Sometimes she schrills. It is too funny.
I was reading last night on one of my parenting forums that this woman's little boy that just turned 3 months old already has 2 teeth coming in.

I had to read up on this because I didn't think we had to worry about that for a while yet. On the average a baby starts to teeth between 4-7 months of age. Some babies will start to teeth as early as 3 months, and in very rare cases babies can be born with one or two chompers already!

Well, Molly is 2 month, 2 weeks, and 3 days old, and some of the things she has been doing is pointing in the direction that she might be cutting some teeth very soon.

First of all she has been fussier a lot more, especially when I try to feed her. She is chewing on her fists a lot, and she is starting to drool more, though not as bad as it could get. She loves it when I rub the little studded teething thingy I got her a while back on her gums.

Anyhow, I have looked at her gums but can't tell anything. Only time will tell! :)

Story Time

Greg, and I have started reading to Molly on a nearly daily basis now. They say it is really good for them, even with her this young. Tonight she was actually smiling, and cooing while I read to her. Greg got these special pictures. Our little girl is growing up so fast.

I am totally in awe...I had put Molly in her bassinet for a nap, and she was facing the kitchen.
I have been in the floor in the living room for the last little while. I got up to check my computer. I peeked into the bassinet, and she was facing in the opposite direction...this time she has her pacifier in her mouth!!! I didn't put it in there, so she must have!!! I wished I had seen her do it. I can't believe it! :)
Our little girl is getting so growny.

Getting curious...

Molly is starting to get curious about her toys now. She is starting to follow things with her eyes. She is such a happy baby in the mornings. She likes to talk, and coo with Greg and I, all the while she is kicking and bouncing like mad. I often wonder if she is going to just take off. I think she will be an early walker, but that is just me. She is so active! Sometime I get frustrated with her, because she gets figity during feeding time, and often kicks me.
She is growing up so fast, it is amazing how the time just goes by.

First Shots...

Molly had her first immunization shots on Tuesday. Four in total!! Poor little girl. She did so well. She cried, but only for a short time. I was so proud of her. I was dissappointed I couldn't just go out and reward her with an ice cream or treat of some sort!
She goes back at 4 months of age for more immunizations. She hadn't been weighed since she was a month old, and she weighed 8 lbs then. She now weighs 9 lbs 10 oz. She is growing so fast!
Here are some pics of her from yesterday in a cute little pj set she got from my friend in NY.

Molly has some new friends...

I took the time a couple of days ago to take some pictures with some of her stuffed animals, and they just turned out so cute!

Sleeping through the night...

Molly has been doing pretty good about sleeping through the night since I decided I should let her sleep instead of waking her to feed her. She usually falls asleep in the late evening, and then maybe up for a feed, then we for sure have her ready for sleep by 10pm. She slept this morning until after 5a.m. So that is pretty good.

I thought for the longest time that I should be waking her, and felt it was bad for her to miss a feeding or two. I finally learned that if she were hungry she would wake up, so I learned to let it go.

Molly is cooing, and making more happy noises these days. She smiles at me and Greg, and that just melts away any frustrations. :)

Last Saturday we took her to Sears to try to get her portrait done, but we didn't have an appointment, and they couldn't work us in until in the afternoon. Well, Molly by that time had stayed up the entire time...which is unusual for her , since she sleeps during all of our outings. Well, by the time we got there, and her changed into her little dress, she was cranky, and tired. She didn't want to have any part of getting her portrait done. So we go back in two weeks in the morning this time.

In 2 days she will be officially 2 months old. She was born 8 weeks ago this past Sunday. It is hard to believe the time has gone by so quickly. She will be in college before we know it!!!

Cool Gift...

Molly got the coolest quilt the other day made by three woman we know from the community. It is just beautiful. We really love it. Molly has gotten all kinds of blankets...anywhere from fleece, knitted, crocheted, quilts, chenile, cotton, velour. She has gotten about 20 in total now. She will definitely keep really warm.
Here are pics of the quilt.

Clothes, Clothes everywhere!!!!!

Oh my! Molly has soooo many clothes, she can open up a small boutique of her own.
Washing, and putting stuff away...I swear I come across stuff I swear I have never laid eyes on before in my life!!!!! It isn't just the clothes either, she has blankets, and toys coming out of her ears too! :) She will never want for anything that is for sure.
She is a very loved little girl. :)
I am afraid she won't get to wear some of the stuff, but we will try to wear it once if we can. :)
Thank goodness for consignment shops!
